Gotta love Madaras nonchalant attitude
Juubi trapped in cements! Oh no
Since whenever we mentioned the anime it was generally in this thread anyway - new little filler going on right now, different art style but not bad. they just went all ballsy and wrote in Hidan as a revived corpse from Kabuto's Edo-Tensei. Did he ever show up in the War and I'm just not remembering it? I had always assumed he was still technically alive, just beheaded and underground.
I don't get why he keeps including the side characters and their jutsus that will prove to be useless when in fact, the one thing that was needed was naruto showing that he's in fact confident to win the fight. I mean seriously, all their assfuck no jutsu won't do anything at all, it's just tiresome that he wastes time on the irrelevant characters -_-
Well that sucked for Shikamarus dad... pretty smart move on Madaras part. Yeah, I still don't see how in the hell the shinobi alliance no jutsu is going to defeat juubi/madara/obito...
They won't, they're going to lose and the infinite tsukoywhatever is going to happen. Everyone will go to the dream world where everything is perfect and everyone is alive, except Naruto is going to escape through the power of friendship/way of the ninja/sexyjutsu/somethingsomethingfriendship. http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.ph...usEaterMachine
Oh my god, the 10 tails looks vile. I love it.
Madara's comments are so douchey. Great way to make the main villain even more unlikable!
More about the anime filler: Hidan isn't the real Hidan or something. Kabuto found a way to replicate clones or some shit and cheated to edo-tensei Hidan.
That aside, this filler arc isn't bad. The latest episode had all kinds of bad assery with all the jutsu thrown around.
Probably he is the only one that realizes that they are in a dream world, since he is the only pure blood uchiha, besides the main villains. And he takes it upon himself to break the jutsu.
I hope I don't get flak for this but I can't wait until this shit is finished. I don't know if I'm looking forward to it because I like it or because I just need closure after nearly or over a decade of this. I don't know if it's because I'm a decade older or Kishimoto's writing is getting worse but it just doesn't feel like it used to. It's not as bad as painful as the whole last arc of Bleach (Fullbring) but this is simply not how I should be feeling during the final battle.
It isnt the final battle yet. Saucegay still hasnt shown up!
i just hope he doesn't pan/focus on sasuke and their new little journey. it'd be nice just to forget about sasuke and his minions, there's already too many uchiha anyway. I hope headquarters really get's killed off, not like i want ppl to die, but since it happened, i don't want to see a miraculous "super shield of safety" you know.
Why... Nagato rezzed the entire city after flattening it. While people have certainly died before, I imagine some sort of Plot Hole No Jitsu incoming sooner rather than later. Maybe Madara is already in a genjitsu from Sasugay
Wouldn't be surprised if you were right. It has to be something like that or him coming in the last minute and helping save the day somehow.
sadly that seems to appear to be the only way to redeem sasuke, having 2 full blooded uchiha to battle would be too tough, and then having sasuke coming in at the last minute, with the rinnegan cuz you know he used the time capsule jutsu and spent 20 years to learn it in the span of 1hour like dbz or bankai learning ichigo. I really don't want kishimoto trying to redeem sasuke, he tried so hard to redeem itachi, he should just let them go, rather than have the ultimate rinnegan sasuke teaming up with naruto to do a super kamehameha. I know it sounds like dribble, but really can you not say it could happen? and it's what you're afraid of.
Hold on though.. Super teleport Kamehameha was awesome.
gah i'd wish kish would stop making naruto a child when he needs to "explain" stuff. All of a sudden, battle hardened naruto "looses" his focus and is wide eyed dolt, he doesn't understand strategy, he doesn't understand sacrifice. i do hope they were just throwing rinne tensei as a plot device that won't be used, or ... "omg, used by sasuke, ultimate friendship sacrifice", i hope kish just threw it out there as a curve ball. not like i love to see characters die, i just don't' want to see something like american comics, "oh look spidey wasn't dead, it was mephisto, he's alive again".
Damn, I really liked Neji too - always wanted him to get more time on the page...but not like this...not like this...
His death will probably give it more reason for Naruto and Hinata to hook up.
oh yeah Naruto is going to be pissed, especially with Obito mocking him at the end...
Also, Sasuke can't use the rinne tensei.
Didn't Naruto also hurt his shoulder when the 10-Tails knocked him and the other Shinobi away?
meh, just a boring talking chapter... next chapter should be good... (btw what the hell is up with Hinatas eyes in the last panel)
Looks like she's having a good time holding Naruto's hand but then got a full load of his/kyuubi's chakra. ;o
So are you saying that she is being Chakra raped by the Kyuubi? That's definitely a rape face.
well the Chakra does go everywhere in her body so the Kyuubi knows her better than she knows herself at this point
Incoming tail and a healthy coat of red velour-like fur.
maybe it was more that kyubbi chakra heals, and she got replenished and is ready to fight.
Back in my day the Kyuubi chakra poisoned other people
Anime filler finished up yesterday and Naruto will finally be joining the war next week.
So new one tomorrow? Manga here says 3rd week. Technically it is the third week of Jan.
Yeah we should have a new chapter tomorrow. Anyone here read soul eater? Last chapter was pretty boss.
New chapter out (mangahere.com) and aside from all the FRIENDSHIP! stuff, it's pretty decent. Sasuke is apparently.... back at Konoha?
Naruto filling everyone with his Kyuubi juice.
The kyuubi juice is pretty dumb. I'm glad they're wrapping up this series because they're jumping all the sharks.
Honestly whether it keeps going or not doesn't matter because I'm done with the series either way, lol. Just like the Dragonball franchise was over for me when he beat Majin Buu.
Kishi said naruto would go on for a year at most. Cracks me up how awful it is now. He is totally milking the story till the last drop. What has this world come to when bleach is better then naruto.
I'm not sure what the big problem you guys have with Naruto atm. I still look forward to it every week and Naruto dispersing his chakra isn't unbelievable at all. If you're thinking that the Kyuubi chakra should be killing everyone, that could probably be explained away by the Kyuubi being an asshole before and now he's cool. It's already been established in the story that the bijuu aren't actually evil, they're just old and jaded.
To be fair, it was only because this week's chapter of Bleach was fucking crazy awesome.
I like the naruto manga but there's just no where to go from this storyline. The entire series is all about Naruto having this unlimited power source that eeks out once in a while but mostly holds him back, but once he masters it he's king of the universe. Now that he's mastered it he can show it off once and then the series is done.
Yeah it seems to be a recurring problem with anime that they constantly have to one up the previous in terms of power to the point where it becomes so stupid there is no going back.
Being as I have watched this series for so long I will see it to the end, but I can't help but sigh at how it unfolds.
Also bleach I really wish would have ended after they put away Aizen.
Naruto is building up to a shitload of FRIENDSHIP! power + him just being awesome. I hope he doesn't die and Kakashi becomes next Hokage, just because I feel that would be right. But it really is feeling like Naruto vs. Saucegay is going to end in stalemate death/rape so that nobody wins. Hate vs. Love and the dichotomy thereof.
The whole series has been about Naruto breaking cycles. He will succeed with Sasuke where Jiraiya failed with Orochimaru.
Yeah you're out of your mind if you think Naruto isn't going to come out of this as Hokage and ushers in an era of peace.
And if Naruto realizes he's only part of an endless cycle and turns heel hen the story becomes interesting again.
Bah... I was hoping we got to see Rock Lee open his gates while using Kyuubi's chakra and actually lay the hurt on the Juubi single handedly... sigh I'm still waiting for them to show him at least do ONE awesome thing ever since his drunken fight...
HEY GUYS I HEARD YOU LOVE ROCK LEE, WELL LET"S SHOW WHAT HE C....
Meanwhile in no-one-gives-a-shit-land...
I meant when Oro first defected and Jiraiya tried to stop him and change his mind.
Part of the story is that
and that Naruto has to save Sasuke in order to break the cycle.
I couldn't remember the Orochimaru part...been a long time. I also stopped reading the manga before and in the midst of the Nagato arc. Started it up again after that.
Yup, the reason that Jiraiya became a wanderer was because he couldn't stop Orochimaru from going evil. It let him try to hunt him down and such.
You were all so right on 'Now back to sasu-gay'. It wasn't so terrible, except I don't know how I feel about the Death God seal being capable of being undone. Feels like a really lame plot device. It'll lead to an inevitable fight from Naruto vs his father though so...that might actually be pretty cool.
Fucking Deus Ex Machina. First orochimaru gets his arms back and then he resurrects the other hokages.
I'm actually excited. Finally we can see the 4th (hopefully) bust out some more moves.
First good chapter in months (years?). Good job Kishi.
It's a deus ex machina but I don't give a fuck. But wouldn't Orochimaru have also released the remaining of Kurama's chakra as well, or can he selectively choose what to unseal?
That's if Oro knows that the 4th sealed half of Kurama's chakra inside him. He might since he's a genius, but we'll find out next week(?)
well played Kishi.. well played. Hopefully they retain their conscience.
Well Madara knew how to release himself from the Edo Tensei (?) and afaik either the first or the second hokage was the initial inventor of that jutsu... soooooo... shouldn't he/they be able to do the same?
Its an interesting twist seeing this. Naruto and the Kyuubi will finally go full power, and who else would know everything besides the First 4 hokage's? They've been there and seen it all. I wouldnt be suprised to see if Orochimaru releases them to fight for Konoha in the war. Would be nice to see them team up and go against the reanimated Madara. Kinda like the failed 5 Kage's against Madara. As well as seeing Naruto and his father team up for an epic fight would be amazing.
I could either see Oro using those 4 Hokages to finish wiping out Kohona (he'd appreciate the irony) but... using them to take out his competition in the form of Tobi and Madara would also make sense.
I would lean to Oro using the four Hokages to take on Tobi and Madara then turn his sights on Kohona.
Madara and Hashirama (1st Hokage) settled the village TOGETHER (along with the 2nd Hokage, Hashirama's brother, who became the 2nd Hokage when the 1st died). Those three existed together rather concurrently. And the resurrection was created by the 2nd Hokage.
Orochimaru is going to come back to the war scene, destroy Tobi/Madara and then go all Snape and claim he was a double-double agent this whole time! /endmanga
Well supposedly the 2nd was the one who invented edo tensei so if that's true, he of all people should be able to break the jutsu just like Madara. But he was summoned early on in the series in the fight against the third. Sooooo yea that's a gaping plot-hole if no explanation is offered.
Im pretty sure Madara explained it allready. You have to cast a particular jutsu right as the Edo Tensei is being ended. Thats why Madara couldnt break free earlier, only after the Edo Tensei was released could he truly be "free".
Edit -- Yep found it, you can release the summoning contract when the spell is released.32_591_img_17_46279.jpg

Interestingly, Itachi had the opportunity (though perhaps not the knowledge that you could use it that way) to use the Edo Tensei he had just learned from Kabuto to do what Madara did but chose to die.

He is basically saying that if you know the jutsu, you can release yourself from the service of the one who summoned you, and you will have a body that is immortal, unlimited chakra, and cannot be controlled. Hence why he is so OP in the manga right now. His original intention was to have Nagato resurrect him using the Rinnegan but that would have made him mortal.
But as Madara has explained - he still needs his mortal body as his current one can't be the container for the 10 Tails. I think Madara wants to execute his moon-eye plan even if he has to give up his current overpowered body.
I couldn't tell what Oro was doing in this chapter but I knew what he wanted to do. Now you've got four giant Chekov's guns in the scene and if you're going to jump the death shark you may as well jump the death-god shark.
Whether Naruto is going to get the evil side of the 9tails is up in the air. I could see it going either way. They've seemingly retconned the fox so hard that I wouldn't be surprised if they retconned the evil side of him. I also wouldn't be surprised if they just made him semi-evil but more powerful again, or a torn character. Either way it doesn't matter because this story is ending soon.
As for Oro, nothing would make me happier than to see him turn face by having the opportunity to destroy Konoha but saves it instead. What I really want to hear is what the third has to say about seeing Orochimaru giving him a double thumbs up.

What this means for Naruto and Kurama, remains to be seen.
